OSU is one of those big-name, big-time schools that play lacrosse and also have that instant recognition factor. The red, white and silver (or grey at times) along with a Buckeye is synonymous with OSU and their new STX Lacrosse padding fits right in. The Assault gloves are mostly red and grey with a little white thrown in and the arm padding is mostly white with a little red thrown in. We’re fans of having different colored gloves than arm pads, especially when using a color like red as your primary. It can be overbearing. We only wish OSU had gone with mostly grey arm pads. Embrace the grey and silver, OSU! It makes you different!
That would have looked great. But without seeing their uniforms, helmets, etc… the grey arm pad point is moot. I do wonder if OSU will have another pair of gloves in white, and what their Nike gloves will look like, but these are solid looking and could easily last the Buckeyes until the end of their season without anyone getting bored.
STX keeps dropping NEW college gear on the STX Facebook page. So make sure you check it out. They have Hofstra, Penn State, Navy, Hopkins and now OSU up already. Cuse is soon!!
